Supporting Urban Integrated Transport Systems: Transferable Tools for Local Authorities (SUITS)

Marco Diana; Miriam Pirra; Andree Woodcock; Sofia Martins

SUITS is a European Project aimed at fostering capabilities of cities in implementing Sustainable Urban
Mobility Plans (SUMPs) measures. A survey was implemented at the beginning of the project to characterise
nine cities within the consortium through three main activities: an expert assessment based on a set of
quantitative indicators related to the actual offer of transport, a self-assessment on the level of actions of the city
stakeholders regarding different aspects linked to SUMPSs implementation and an assessment of the areas on
which most support is needed. The first two assessments pointed to the same bipartition of the cities in two sets
which can be labelled as “leader” and “follower”, on the basis of the relative performances in the different
ambits. Both leader and follower cities show needs in areas such as non-motorised transport, intermodality or
electric mobility, whereas the most urgent needs when considering policy priorities are related to non-motorised
and public transport, urban logistics, mobility management and electric mobility.
